Deputies Help Family In Need For Holidays. On December 9, 2014 several deputies with the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office were having lunch at a local restaurant when an anonymous person walked into the restaurant and approached the deputies. The man thanked the deputies for their service to the community.He then left money at the table for the deputies to purchase their lunch and the
anonymous person then left the restaurant.
After discussing the gesture from the anonymous male, the deputies each decided to match the gentlemen’s gesture and collect donations for a needy family.One of the deputies stated he had recently learned of a family that had the misfortune of being victims of a house fire.The fire occurred on December 9, 2014 at the 700 Block of Mary Street, New Iberia.The McAllister/Jenkins family, along with their three young children, had lost nearly all of their belongings in the fire.
The several deputies then sent out an email inspiring other deputies to donate to the family in need.Within minutes, deputies throughout the department responded to the email pledging their donations.
On the morning of December 15, 2014 deputies went to the temporary home of the McAllister/Jenkins family and delivered their donations of toys, clothes and other needed items to a very appreciative family.
These deputies committed a very selfless act by starting a contribution in order to help a needy family and they are as follows: Deputy Christopher Wilson, Corporal Cassie Duhon, Deputy Lindsey Comeaux, Deputy Craig Lewis all proud members of the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office.
